DESCRIPTION

A delightful 1 bedroom freehold cottage, located in the heart of Falmouth's town centre, nestled just off New Street, with an enclosed front garden, open-plan kitchen/living area, mezzanine area (recently utilised as a bedroom), bedroom/dressing area and shower room.

THE PROPERTY

'Arwenack Cottage' is located just off New Street and can be access via a pedestrian walkway under the Harbour Court development. There is a timber gateway from the pedestrian access lane, which accesses the enclosed front garden of the property, predominantly laid with shingle with raised beds, whilst a paved pathway leads to the stable-type front entrance door.

Internally, there is an open-plan living/dining/kitchen area with a comprehensively fitted kitchen and doorway to the bedroom, which houses a staircase to the mezzanine area, which has previously been utilised as a bedroom, and with access to the shower room.

The Parish Church is just 100 yards away, to the side of which a footpath leads directly into the town centre, with its excellent range of shops, commercial and leisure amenities. Nearby Quay Hill leads onto picturesque Customs House Quay, with its quayside bars, visitors pontoon, leisure and fishing boats, beyond which lies Events Square, the National Maritime Museum, seafront and beaches.
